Meaning:Cypress tree
Cypress is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin. It ultimately derives from the Ancient Greek name Kyparissos or Cyparissus, which was the name of a young boy in Greek mythology. According to the myth, Cyparissus accidentally killed his favorite companion, a tamed stag, with a hunting javelin. He was so overcome with grief that he transformed into a cypress tree, which is a classical symbol of mourning. These towering trees are seen as a bridge between the worlds, reaching up towards immortality as a hopeful sign of life after death. If you’re mourning a loved one who has recently passed, naming baby Cypress could be a lovely way to honor them.
